Information security remains a critical concern for the UK public sector and is fuelled by increased awareness of security challenges as the government moves to consolidate all key back office functions and towards a digital by default model of service delivery. Securing critical information and assets, including the government’s ICT infrastructure, are vital to safeguarding against cyber espionage and attack as well as a range of other security threats such as criminal and negligent behaviour.
Whitehall Media’s 4th annual GovSec conference is geared around enabling government to function effectively, safely and securely through improved IT, information and infrastructural security. The all-day conference will explore how public sector organisations and professionals can make sense of securing their functions in a rapidly changing environment.
Join hundreds of senior IT, Cyber and Information Security professionals to discuss the threat landscape, opportunities to detect and defeat threats through appropriate skills and capabilities as well as best practice and approaches required to protect critical national systems and networks. Through a series of thought-leadership and case-study presentations, the conference will showcase the very best examples of how the public sector is building resilience and utilising technology to solve strategic security issues.
